Home Entertaining - Build your own Cocktail Bar
It may still be a bit chilly, bars and restaurants are just opening up outside, but the emphasis on entertaining with small groups at home is definitely the way 2021 is looking.
One of the main trends is home mixology and DIY cocktails, so it is officially the new big thing.
To be honest, it has been growing every year for the last two decades, but why not get in with the in crowd.
So, what type are you? Happy with a bunch of bottles in a cabinet, or a fully blown to scale bar in the garden?
Whatever your style make it a WOW space and event.
Here's EW's guide to a top bar
Start with the space you have - don't go too mad. If real estate is an issue don't despair, you can always add some glitz and glamour with a classic gold round drinks trolley.
Bar storage ideas
Design and functionality – Think storage - make a true statement with classy antiqued white metal pharmacy style cabinet.
Stock up in chic style
Stock the bar with items that work for you - not sickly syrups that you'll never use - and make sure you have nice mixer glassware and containers.
EW has a wonderful selection of hand etched bottles and vessels perfect for your home bar.
Add quirky flourish
Now your bar is full and ready to go - add some funky quirky ornaments and a cheeky sign to make your guests smile.
So, let your hair down, have a laugh, but watch your measures - or you'll pay for it the next day!
